in search of everclear
I've been making my own medicines from wildcrafted and home garden plants for many years. In my state, a permit is required to purchase grain alcohol for making herbal tinctures. The permit requires the holder to be open to random searches of his home at any time, and to keep meticulous records of purchases, uses and consumption. You can imagine how unwieldy it would be to make a note in a permanent record of each time anyone in your family took a drop of a tincture, not to mention the compromise of privacy it would be to have your home routinely searched and "inspected."
Needless to say, I don't want such a permit. What are the laws like in your state? Does anyone have another solution?
